Sharing the model might help. Did you use the Rapid Restore or a stock copy of XP? Share exactly how you reinstalled and why.

Its Lenovo 3000 N100 model 0689 laptop.

im pretty sure the internal speaker is working well before. its just recently my laptopn got infected with computer virus. what i did, reformat my laptop and reinstall the OS using Windows XP Pro. SP2. since i left my cd driver in my hometown, im confident that all driver can be download on lenovo website. but after installing the driver, the internal speaker will not work. but if using an earphone to the speaker jack it has a sound.

Hi Folks,

I had this problem with my Lenovo N100 and now it s OK.

This is the solution:
1)Download this patch: KB835221 (
2)Download this patch:KB888111
Based on yuo sistem
XP Service Pack 2->
XP SP1->
Windows Server 2003->
Windows 2000 SP4->
3) Instal both
4) Download this driver: 63ar14ww.exe (
5) Install the driver
6) BUT....If the problem continue...
7) control Panel/sistem/hardware, device manager and check "PCI device" ou "PCI Bus" error. click on it and "Update driver".
Let Windows Install auto.
Cool Turn off Windows and install driver (63ar14ww.exe) again.
9) Turn off Windows and it s working....
